  2. Because Photobucket has chosen to in effect "take down" everyone's photos (unless you pay them), we have extended post edit time in the Luthier's Corner to UNLIMITED.  If you used photobucket and happen to still have your images of builds, you can go back and fix as many of your posts as far back as you wish.

    Note that TalkBass will host unlimited attachments for you, all the time, for free ;)  Just hit that "Upload a File" button.  You are also free to use our Media Gallery if you want a place to create albums, organize photos, etc :)

    Hi all,

    I am looking for references for luthiers local to me that are best qualified to do repairs, upgrades, and setups on my instruments. I am in Long Beach, which is in the greater Los Angeles area.

    Any advice is appreciated!!

    A name that comes vaguely to mind is John Carruthers. IIRC, he has, or had, a shop in Venice or somewhere around there, but I could well be wrong.
